For millions of believers around the world, faith in Christ and belief in the teachings of the Bible are not only discouraged but actually dangerous.
KNOW HIS PERSECUTED.
KNOW HIS WORD.
Periodically, Secret Church gatherings are held to engage in an intense six-hour Bible study as we identify with and pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the globe.
The objective of Secret Church is for you to pass along what you learn in these gatherings to others so that you can make disciples of Christ in all nations for God’s glory.
Beyond These Walls
Most Christ-followers around the world don’t have access to seminaries or Bible colleges. In fact, Christ-followers in many parts of the world have no formal Christian teaching at all.
The teaching sessions are recorded, then transcribed and translated into many different languages, including Spanish, Mandarin, Hindi, and Arabic. These resources will be distributed worldwide, and will compose a portable seminary, so to speak, with minicourses in biblical training accessible to anyone.
Secret Church – San Jose
The next Secret Church gathering is Good Friday, April 6th, and we will be discussing The Cross and Suffering.
Suffering is a sobering reality in a fallen world. Followers of Christ are not immune to adversity and affliction. On the contrary, there is a real sense in which following Christ means that trials and tribulations are more likely to come our way. As a result, whether walking through sickness, sorrow, pain, or persecution, the questions abound: Why am I suffering? Where is God when I suffer? How can I suffer well? When will my suffering end? How can God be good and allow such evil in the world? How can God be gracious and ordain such suffering in my life? During this Secret Church on Good Friday, we will explore these extremely profound yet deeply personal questions through the lens of Christ’s sufferings on the cross. In the process, we will come to a surprising discovery of how the gospel strengthens, sustains, supports, and ultimately satisfies us in the middle of suffering.
We will be hosting a simulcast broadcast in San Jose. Contact Danielle (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending.
